Living in LA, I get to enjoy the sunshine for most of the year, but there's nothing like a Summer getaway to bring out the teeny bikinis and tropical-style separates. I am heading to Morocco in a few weeks and have put together the ultimate packing list for my trip! Here are 12 of my Summer getaway must haves from Piperlime.
I always pack pieces that I can wear during the day as cover-ups and that can also be dressed up to wear out at night. After I veg by the pool for the day, I like to dine out like a local. These tops by Jen's Pirate Booty and Roberta Roller Rabbit definitely do the trick and lighten my suitcase load. I'll wear them with denim cutoffs to the pool or white skinny jeans with metallic Schutz heels to go out.
While surfing and hiking are some of my favorite pastimes, I plan on doing the touristy thing too. When sightseeing and on my feet all day, I'll wear this bohemian dress from Sabine. I love the geometric embroidered details, and the light wash is perfect for Summer. I'll wear comfortable sandals and a bright necklace. Necklaces with pops of color like these from Pim + Larkin and Kate Spade New York are absolute must haves this Summer.
And of course I can't leave home without a teeny bikini. I'm in love with the ethnic print on this Mara Hoffman bikini. I'll do print on print and wear another Roberta Roller Rabbit favorite as my cover-up.
Bold prints are also HOT this Summer. I like these with palm leaves by Juicy Couture. They remind me of the wallpaper at the Beverly Hills Hotel! Again, a great double-up — wear them to the pool or rock them with heels at night.
Last but certainly not least, a light jacket is essential. Nights get chilly so I'm always prepared to layer on a casual military jacket.
Bon voyage! Wherever you're heading this Summer, I hope I've helped you with your packing list. For more of my Summer picks, check out Piperlime.
